Meet Dr Tara Hickey
I have spent most of my professional life working as a clinical psychologist and researcher in rural and city settings in several countries. After living in Melbourne for over a decade, I moved to the Wimmera several years ago due to the draw of the community and the great outdoors.
I enjoy working with adults who are experiencing a range of difficulties from day to day stressors to more serious mental health challenges. My areas of expertise include managing stress, anxiety, depression, life-transitions, trauma and psychotic experiences. My therapeutic style is collaborative. I will work with you to create a shared understanding of the problem. I will support you to discover what works best for you and to make changes that will meaningfully impact your life. Depending on your needs therapy can be brief (less then 10 sessions), medium or longer-term.
